Carnival of Genealogy #17 is posted

Jasia at has posted the 17th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy at The topic for this issue is "acknowledging and giving thanks to those who have inspired our genealogy research and helped us along the way."

There are about 10 entries this time, and they are all good reading. Go visit the post. One of the very best features of the Carnival is the different bloggers who participate - every edition brings several new ones that have wonderful content.

The next Carnival of Genealogy will be about:

5 Best tips for specific genealogy research. Let's get the word out and create a Carnival full of recommended "best" tips for researching in a specific time or location. We've all discovered some outstanding resources in the course of our research. Maybe you've got some wonderful resources for researching in Ireland, New England, or South Carolina. Tell us the best sources you recommend for researching a specific location! Did your family come over on the Mayflower, fight on Civil War battlefields, or participate in the California gold rush? Share your best sources for researching specific time or events. Let's put together more than just a list of resources, let's make it a Carnival of best recommended resources! Think about writing more than one blog article if you have knowledge of more than one area of research and submit them all. Let's see if we can get this next Carnival to go around the world, the country, and the block! Tell us how you've researched historical events too! Recommendations can be specific databases, books, web sites, genealogical/historical societies, collections, etc. This is Challenge Carnival... bring on your best!

If you want to enter the next Carnival, write a blog post on the subject and enter it on the Carnival of Genealogy submission page here.

Ah, a challenge! Blog fodder! Probably worth 5 posts or more. Cool.
